No, not 29 million job offers. I'm no better at applying for jobs than you are, and my town offers nothing but dead-end McJobs or positions in the military industrial complex, just like yours. I mean I just spotted an easy way to create 29 million jobs, one for every unemployed or underemployed U.S. worker.
No, I'm not about to say "Just raise taxes on gazillionaires and hire people to build stuff." I'm all in favor of that, for lots of reasons, including the political corruption created by a concentration of wealth. We might have to disempower gazillionaires before we can enact any sensible policies, including the one I'm about to propose, but it can itself be done without raising a dime in revenue. This means that the President, who has broad, albeit unconstitutional, powers to move funding around from one program to another could do this himself. Or Congress could.
Whichever branch of government found the decency first could create 29 million well-paid and rewarding jobs improving the world. And this could be done through policies long favored by a majority of Americans.
How, you ask?
Is that true that the government lost $2.3 trillion in Iraq and Afghanstan? Surely that's a typo.
The thing I don't understand is how voters can't see that while republicans want to balance the budget they don't seem to want to move any money that really matters. Why don't they end the oil subsidies and corporate welfare? No, they only want to cut from the poor and working people. The people they hurt most seems to be the ones that vote for them? How do any of them ever get elected?
